I have had a lovely time in the last couple of weeks, meeting and being energised by all our new Volunteer Listeners. We have been really pleased by the number of people who are keen to work with Time to Shine’s local evaluators to find out more about how individual lives have been changed by the different projects’ approaches to tackling loneliness. I am delighted that a number of them have been able to bring experiences from their own working lives to the process, and we are already planning to make some tweaks as a result.
It looks like we will have 8 teams of volunteers to head out and visit Time to Shine Funded Projects, small and large, over the next 12 months. If you know there are members of your group who would like to tell their story please get in touch with Jessica@opforum.org,uk
And keep an eye out here. I hope I can inspire some of our volunteers to write a blog for us about the experience.
